The Cat® CW16 9-wheel pneumatic roller offers an operating weight range of 5200 kg to 15 000 kg (11,484 lb - 33,069 lb) for excellent versatility and performance. Equipped with an efficient Cat engine, this machine delivers smooth, reliable performance on grades and soft base materials.
Nine rubber tires provide an overall compaction width of 1754 mm (69") with 36 mm (1.4") overlap.
Ballast options deliver a load per wheel range of 0.58 to 1.67 metric. The the water-tight ballast chamber is equipped with baffled compartments to prevent surge.
Several features help prevent material from adhering to the tires. The water spray system includes a pump, triple filtration, and dedicated spray nozzles for each tire. Spring-applied, self-adusting scrapers help remove debris and prevent accumulation. Standard cocoa mats enhance water distribution over the entire wheel surface. Optional thermal aprons trap heat around the wheels and creates a warmer environment that helps prevent pickup.
Oscillating Front Wheels
Oscillating front wheels optimize compaction beneath each wheel and eliminates bridging over softer areas.
An LCD provides a visual references of machine controls to keep the operator informed when making adjustments. The display can be customized to support multiple language options. The push-button controls make operation easy and enable operators to modify engine speed, travel speed, and water spray functions.
A C3.4B engine meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final and EU Stage IV emissions and provides 75 kW (100.5 hp) of power. A C4.4 engine provides 75 kW (100.5 hp) of power and meets emissions equivalent to U.S. EPA Tier 3, EU Stage IIIA, and China Stage III.
Automatic Speed Control
Automatic speed control enables operators to maintain consistent speeds for optimal performance.
Eco-mode modifies the engine speed to 1900 rpm for peak performance and lower fuel consumption. The reduced rpm also lowers sound levels for enhanced operator comfort.
